When you first are shown a question in the Suggested Edit review queue, the Approve, Reject and Improve buttons (which are disabled for the first second or two) now look like this:

And then when the buttons are enabled, they look like this:

not-so-blurry image

Maybe I'm being overly picky, but the "disabled" buttons look fairly blurry and/or out-of-focus, and is pretty jarring to see.

It only lasts a second or two before the buttons become enabled, but surely there must be a better way to show disabled buttons. I know, I know, it just rolled out, but still...

EDIT: This may only be impacting Internet Explorer 8.

  • No, I just my sticker last week, I expect the glasses may take a while. Commented Feb 5, 2013 at 21:42

    Hmm, what browser? This is what it looks like to me: i.imgur.com/0Iwd47N.png (I'm on Chrome)

  • Looks fine in IE9 (by which I mean, uglier than Chrome/Firefox, less ugly than this). The background should be gray.

  • @Bart -- wow, that's pretty different. This is on IE 8; the buttons do look fine on my Droid. I've edited my title. Don't know if this is more appropriate as Support or Bug. Commented Feb 5, 2013 at 21:51
  • @Shog9 - yup, I see that when reviewing from my phone. On my browser, they're all dark gray; the background color never changes, the font just shifts one pixel up and left when "enabled". I've uploaded a before-and-after picture. Commented Feb 5, 2013 at 21:53
  • They're not going to push a fix that only affects IE8. ;P

IE8 is no longer a supported browser, so we won't be fixing this explicitly.

I think it might have been fixed incidentally (at least IE10's IE8 compatibility mode thinks it has been, for whatever's that worth).

  • No, I just tested, it's still fugly in an IE8 browser, but fortunately we've actually gotten out of the stone age and updated our browsers. Commented Mar 7, 2013 at 20:37
